Good looking bottle, how were the contents?
Tallulah has had some nice Syrah and Rhone blends from shake ridge too.
I passed on this one; too much out flow while at D&D. Perhaps an upcoming W-O.

Very good. I'd buy again, here, or from the winery directly.

Very dark juice, not a Sangiovese. Dark. Some sediment. Notes of Cherry, blackberry, licorice, some earthy notes too. Rated at 15.1%, but doesn't feel like a hot Zin. The body improves after an hour in the glass. Not the most peppery Sirah or Petite Sirah. Good Juice.

Went great with a steak.

I'd be interested to see what PS has to say about it.

It is ok not worth the $18.99 price tag...interetsing blend of sonoma, santa Barbara, and monterey counties...was hoping for more...on deck: 2011 Leonhardt zinf from RRV I purchased at TJs for $10.99... Its a joint venture with the crazy lady from Sunce!

When she is drinking, he avoids those wines for obvious reasons

Undoubtedly a great cab, but do you ever consider if wines that cost as much as this one are worth the price? This is a debate we (wine drinkers) often have; i.e. do the $40 wines taste half as good as the $80 wines, etc. etc.?

The thing to think about is that you only have so many nights to drink. I can assure you that no $40 wine I know is 20 times as good as $2 chuck but I only have so many nights on this earth and those nights are worth more than $2 wine.

My question would be how does Caymus SS stack up against Beringer PR or (insert your preferred flagship here)?

Higher effective rates, for the most part, but less pain in actually getting the forms done. Way less. The forms in the US are ridiculous.
